Latest updates of paternity leave for the fathers of India;
After the recent passage of the Maternity leave bill in Rajya Sabha paternity leave have become more enhanced.
Maneka Gandhi the “Women and child Development Minister” said that such a legislation will have little impact in India, where men do not even avail their existing leave entitlements to share the responsibilities of child care.
In one of the article of “the Indian Express” she says to reporters that “Paternity Leave can be considered only if, once the women goes back to work after her 26 weeks of leave, we find that men are availing their sick leave for a month to take care of the child. Let me see how many men do that. I will be happy to give it but for a man, it will be just a holiday, he won’t do anything”
According to Maneka Gandhi all the Indian Man are just having a hunger of holidays so that they can be relax in their comfort zones.
Now it is time to see how the man uses the paternity leave whether for child care or for own relaxation at home.
